Pallet Scrap Charging Station

Wires and gadgets, part of our modern life, right? =) Today we will clear this clutter with a super easy DIY: a charging station made from a piece of pallet scrap! Plus beautiful vintage crate labels from early 1900s for you to download!
Does this tangled mess look familiar? =)
We started out with pallet scraps from our 2-pallet potting bench project which you can find here at Hometalk.
We attached a piece of pallet board on the bottom of an end scrap, and a board on the back side.
To hang it on the wall, add a couple of screws on the back side, attach a piece of picture hanging wire or string, and glue or nail two piece of scrap foam or thin wood towards the bottom so it would hang flush.
Pint out the vintage crate label. Apply a even coat of adhesive or glue, attach the label to the wood, and finish with a coat of Modpodge. This will protect the surface by making it more water resistant.

    What a great idea! I think I'll do this, and may extend the front and sides 3 or 4 inches below the "shelf" to mount and hide a power strip. Then I will mount it just above a wall plug that's just below my kitchen window. Thank you so much for this wonderful idea.
